TOTAL WAR: THREE KINGDOMS, Spectacular night-time ambush battle

As the Tyrant Dong Zhuo faces imminent defeat; the cunning chancellor Cao Cao thinks beyond this victory and plots against his coalition partner; the warlord Sun Jian. 

Sun Ren, daughter of the mighty warlord Sun Jian, leads her army in defence of her father’s lands. Little does she realise; the enemy lies in silent wait nearby. As the westering sun slips below the horizon, the ambushers steel themselves for battle. As Sun Ren approaches, the signal-lanterns are lit, and with a great volley of fire-arrows and a mighty roar, they burst from the treeline! 

The Ambush of Sun Ren sees the player commanding the heroic children of Sun Jian and their army, withstanding waves of incoming heroes and warriors in a desperate bid for survival. Spectacular visuals and lighting bring this misty, moon-washed valley to life, as floating lanterns paint the scene and trees burst into flames, casting dynamic shadows as thousands of troops clash.

 This battle also treats players to their first look at Total War: THREE KINGDOMS’ campaign map. Authentic, atmospheric and striking in its detail, it’s the most beautiful Total War campaign map yet.

This spectacular battle from Total War: THREE KINGDOMS will be playable at Gamescom on the Deep Silver stand, Hall 9.
